Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adapted from Decoded, Meltzers hit show on the HISTORY network, History Decoded explores fascinating, unexplained questions. Is Fort Knox empty? Why was Hitler so intent on capturing the Roman ‘Spear of Destiny’? Whats the government hiding in Area 51? Where did the Confederacys $19 million in gold and silver go at the end of the Civil War? And did Lee Harvey Oswald really act alone? Meltzer sifts through the evidence; weighs competing theories; separates what we know to be true with whats still—and perhaps forever—unproved or unprovable; and in the end, decodes the mystery, arriving at the most likely solution. Along the way we meet Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Nazi propagandists, and the real DB Cooper.

Review:

"Adapted from his TV show of the same name, on the History channel, this book from Meltzer counts down the world's top 10 most intriguing and controversial conspiracies. The list includes everything from the secrets of Area 51 to the contents of Fort Knox, and everyone from Adolf Hitler to Lee Harvey Oswald. Given Meltzer's television work, it's no surprise that he proves to be a skillful and entertaining narrator for this audio edition. In offering up his theories, Meltzer's pacing and delivery are often reminiscent of a seasoned salesman's pitch. Even skeptical listeners will find themselves becoming conspiracy theorists after listening to this engaging audiobook. A Workman hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
